We have all been impacted by the pandemic caused by Coronavirus (COVID-19). For the health and safety of our staff and our clients, our office remains operating by working remotely.  All of our legal services are available, including Will signings, Trust signings and Notary Public services. Governor J.B. Pritzker has temporarily modified the laws regarding these services. We are able to witness the signing of your Will remotely by using video-conferences. 

We have been helping businesses and governments understand and apply for Emergency Disaster Relief and Assistance related to the COVID-19 pandemic. There are new laws and rules that protect employees who are laid off or fired during the pandemic. Both employers and employees should become aware of those. Any civil lawsuit may be filed electronically, even though there is limited availability for Court hearings. Most Probate Estates can also be opened by filing electronically. 

We continue to provide our clients with the best service.  Our office is ready to take care of your legal needs. Please call our office at (309) 687-6000.
